The New Gypsies by Iain McKell


We're ecstatic that our visit to New York coincides with Iain McKell's photographic exhibit, The New Gypsies.  This body of work will be on display at the Clic Gallery August 29- October 2.  Isn't it hard to believe that these photos are documentary, and not a fashion spread.

The New Gypsies are a group of British horse drawn travelers seeking an alternative lifestyle.  They do not share an ethnographical origin, but have chosen to depart from capitalist society, while searching for a simplistic lifestyle that is closer to nature.  Iain, a London based photographer, spent 10years living and documenting the lives of the New Gypsies.
